Been MIA...UPDATE

Wow, ladies, been almost 2 months since i've been here. been so crazy busy for me! I will try to keep this short.

Kendra is 7 months old today and doing amazing! She had her check up yesteday and is 15 and 1/2 lbs and 24 and 3/4 inches long. She had a 99.9 fever last night and it spiked up to 101.5 this morning. i know its from her shots, but how high should it be before i should get concerned. They told me last time but now i cant remember...She is crawling like a champ and standing up in her crib. Over the weekend she crawled to her carseat, pushed it over onto its side so that she could stand up next to it. i am in so much trouble LOL. She is doing well on solids. i make all her food myself but tried her on peaches for the first time, from a jar. she liked them, but i didnt like how thin the jar stuff is. the stuff i make is a bit thicker. Anywho, dr recommended starting her on about 4 oz of juice everyday, and said to go ahead and give her the puff snacks, broken up a bit to get her used to picking up her food. She babbles up a storm and loves to growl at us, knowing that we growl back and it turns into a game of sorts.

i quit pumping a while back, she only wants to nurse in the mornings and i got tired of giving up my few precious moments i had with her in the evening. it is working well, my supply is slowly dwindling, so i am not in pain or anything. im sad becaue i know our days of BFing is coming to an end Sad

The pediatrician recommeneded not giving her a bottle if she wakes up inthe middle of the night, to just change her and put her back down and see how it works out with her sleeping. We werent sold on the idea, but last night we tried it and sure enough, she went right back to sleep. i couldnt believe it, and she went to bed at 6:15pm last night so i was worried that she would be up ready to play at 3am. nope, she slept until we got her up 5am. YAY! now if only i could get some sleep.....

Well, when i have time i will read through all of your posts to catch up on how everyone is doing. I've missed you all!

What kind of juice did you start her with? I remember giving DD1 apple juice at this point and she loved it, still does

It was pear juice for babies, less sugar i guess. Somedays she wants it, others not to so much. She likes her food much more than her juice. I will try apple juice next.
